Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2018/19 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £7.95 (+p&p).

Taking a stroll through the grounds of Pollok House gives some indication of how Glasgow’s one per cent lived in the 1800s. From the vastness of Pollok Park, to the grounds of the Maxwell family’s ancestral home, and inside to the basement and the Edwardian Kitchen itself, the experience is thoroughly enjoyable. As is the Kitchen itself. Designed with a modern twist on the original kitchen, it is bright, busy and utterly charming. Doors open onto an excellent outdoor Tea Garden, and this summer will see a takeaway café open, as well as later openings until 8pm. The menu offers many home comforts, such as huge flavour-packed sandwiches through to mains including a chicken pie stuffed with herbs, meat, and vegetables from the garden. Cakes are made on the premises daily, and no visit is complete with tucking into one of the huge scones.
